Written towards a pious lady.
Necessary guidelines for women and on the meaning of the verse
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِذَا جَاءكَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتُ
Allah Tabaraka wa Ta’ala has decreed:
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِذَا جَاءكَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتُ يُبَايِعْنَكَ عَلَى أَن لَّا يُشْرِكْنَ بِاللَّهِ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَسْرِقْنَ وَلَا يَزْنِينَ وَلَا يَقْتُلْنَ أَوْلَادَهُنَّ وَلَا يَأْتِينَ بِبُهْتَانٍ يَفْتَرِينَهُ بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِنَّ وَأَرْجُلِهِنَّ وَلَا يَعْصِينَكَ فِي مَعْرُوفٍ فَبَايِعْهُنَّ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُنَّ اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
Translation of meaning: O Prophet! When the believing women approach you to pledge allegiance to you (take bay’ah) that they shall not associate a partner with Allah, and shall not steal, and shall not commit adultery, and shall not kill their children, and shall not tie false accusations (slander/buhtan) to any one pulling it out of their hands and feet (i.e., concocting baseless slanderous tales), and shall not disobey you in any act of goodness – then take allegiance (bay’ah) from them and seek forgiveness for them from Allah; indeed Allah is Ghafoorur Raheem (Oft-forgiving, Merciful). [Holy Quran 60:12]
This blessed verse was revealed on the day of the conquest of Makkah; and when Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, had finished taking the pledge of allegiance from men, he started taking the pledge of allegiance from the women; and Rasulullah’s, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, taking of the pledge from the women has been only by words, and Rasulullah’s, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, hand patently did NOT touch the hand of any woman taking the pledge. And bad and negative traits are found more in women compared to men, therefore, at the time of women taking the pledge, some additional commands were stated compared to those stated for the men; and the enacting of the commands of the Lord Almighty at this time, included forbidding against those negative character traits.
[EXPLANATION OF THE FIRST CONDITION – NO SHIRK]
The first condition is that NO ONE should be associated as partner to Allah, be it in His Necessary Existence, or in His sole right to be The Only one to be worshiped, because if one’s deeds are not pure from the desire to be seen and heard, and any outcome is sought from other than Allah, even if the matter is of a [outwardly] good standing, then that person does not leave the confines of shirk and is not a [true] muwahhid (bearer of tawhid) or mukhliss (sincere).
Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, has articulated:
الشرك في امتي اخفى من دبيب النمل التي تدب في ليلة مظلمة على صخرة سوداء
In my ummah, shirk is more hidden than the trails of an ant crawling on a black rock on a pitch dark night.
[Persian couplet]: No pretense of evil, for it is more concealed than the trails of an ant on a black rock on a dark night.
And Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, stated:
اتقوا الشرك الاصغر قالوا مل الشرك الاصغر قال عليه و على اله الصلوة و السلام الرياء
Translation of meaning: Beware of the lesser shirk. [The companions] asked, “what is the lesser shirk?”. Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, replied: riyaa (pretentiousness).
And the honor of the rituals of shirk (polytheism) and the respect of the days of kufr (disbelief) has a strong standing in a mushrik (polytheist) and the one who attests to two religions [simultaneously] is ALSO A MUSHRIK, and the one who associates the commands of Islam and kufr, is ALSO A MUSHRIK. Disdain of kufr is a condition for Islam and disdain from the associations of shirk is a condition for tawhid.
And in illnesses and diseases, seeking help from shayateen and idols, which has become commonplace amongst ignorant Muslims, is patently shirk and misguidance, and seeking the fulfillment of desires from carved or uncarved stones is the very essence of kufr and the rejection of the Divine Glory of Wajibul Wujud Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala has stated the following regarding the states of some of the misguided:
يُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَحَاكَمُواْ إِلَى الطَّاغُوتِ وَقَدْ أُمِرُواْ أَن يَكْفُرُواْ بِهِ وَيُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَن يُضِلَّهُمْ ضَلاَلاً بَعِيدًا
Translation of meaning: They desire to approach the devils to judge their affairs, even though they were commanded to disbelieve in them (devils and false deities) and satan desires that he leave them far off into misguidance.
Most women, due to their extreme ignorance, are engrossed in this forbidden seeking of help and plead to these unnamed names (i.e, the fictitious false deities) to solve their miseries, and thus are imprisoned in shirk and the rituals of mushriks. Specially this matter has been witnessed and felt amongst the practicing and non-practicing of them since the spread of the epidemic of small pox, called seetla in hindi. There must be hardly any woman, who is pure of this subtle shirk and does not perform any [satanic] ritual from these [satanic] rituals to seek help; who ever Allah saves!
And honoring the respected days of the hindus and in those days enacting the known rituals of hindus also accentuates shirk necessitates [the ruling of] kufr; as on the diwali of kafirs, jahil Muslims (i.e., Muslims by name/social standing only), specially their womenfolk, gleefully enact their rituals and celebrate it as their Eid; and like the kafirs gifts, send their daughters and sisters gifts, and color their pots during these days like the kafirs do, and fill them up with red-colored rice and send to each other, and specially trust and respect these days – this is ALL shirk and disbelief from the religion of Islam.
Allah Ta’ala states:
Translation of meaning: And most of them believe not in Allah except by attributing partners to Him. [Holy Quran 12:106]
And the taking vows (nadhr) and towards mashayekh and slaughtering animals at their gravesides, this has been termed shirk in books of fiqh and this matter has been dealt with very sternly and this slaughter has been equated to the slaughter of jinns, which is forbidden in the Shari’ah and enters the realm of shirk. This deed must also be avoided as it involves the accentuation of shirk.
There are many forms of vows. Is it necessary that one take a vow to slaughter an animal and go ahead and slaughter it, akin to the slaughter of jinns and [consequently] bear semblance to the worshipers of satan. And similar to this is the fast of women that they keep with the intention of keeping for pious ladies and shuyukh and they mostly concoct names for them [ladies/shuyukh] from their own fancies, and intend their fasts to their names; and the iftar of every [one of these] days’ fasts comprises of a special dish to be eaten in a peculiar way, and they even prescribe specific days for specific fasts – and then they associate their desires and wishes with these fasts and by the tawassul of these fasts [intended to these real/perceived shuyukh] ask of their wishes to these shuyukh, and then believe the fulfillment of these desires as being from their side. This is shirk in ‘ebadah (worship), and seeking of one’s desire by worshiping other [than Allah]. The evil of this matter should be well understood. As it has been mentioned in a hadith qudsiy that Allah Ta’ala states:
الصوم بي و انا اجزى به
بخاري و مسلم
Translation of meaning: The fast is only for Me, and I alone shall reward for it.
which means that [Allah says, i.e., gives the message that] “fasting is peculiar to Me alone and no one other than Me is a partner in being directed the worship of fasting.” Even though in ANY ‘ebadah, it is forbidden to hold partners to Allah Ta’ala, the singling out of fasting is due to the honoring of this ‘ebadah [of fasting] and emphasizing the negating of any shirk in this ‘ebadah [of fasting].
And it is a mere excuse that some women, when warned against the evil of this deed, say that they intend these fasts for Allah Ta’ala, and only gift their rewards to these shuyukh. If they are truthful in this matter, then why do they assign specific days for these fasts, and specific dishes of food, and what are all those various rubbish rituals and practices at the time of iftar for?
Many a time, it happens that they commit many harams at the time of iftar and they have the iftar itself with haram foodstuffs and ask and plead unnecessarily and thus break their fasts and consider the fulfillment of their desires as being specifically associated with these muharramaat (forbidden acts). This is categorical misguidance by itself and adoration of the dejected satan, and Allah Ta’ala alone is the one who saves!
[EXPLANATION OF THE SECOND CONDITION – NO STEALING]
And the second condition that was introduced during the bay’ah of women is the prohibition of theft as it is from the major sins (kabaair), and because this negative trait is found in most of the women folk and very few are the women who are [truly] aware of the nuances of this evil. Therefore, the prohibition from this evil is incorporated into the conditions of their bay’ah. Those women who spend from the wealths of their husbands without seeking their permissions and spend and destroy [the husbands’ wealths] with impunity, it is included in [the ruling of] theft and attributed to the major sin of theft. This can be said in regards to common women, as this habit is proven amongst them and this khiyanah (betrayal of trust) is prevalent in almost all of women folk except those whom Allah Ta’ala has protected.
Alas! They should consider this deed as evil and sinful. The fear of them considering this evil as halal is excessive, and [therefore,] there is more fear of kufr due to considering of this evil as halal.
Al-Hakeem Al-Mutlaq jalla shaanahu (The Definitively All-Wise, majestic is His glory, i.e., Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) forbade women from theft after forbidding them from shirk, as this evil is eventually an open pathway to kufr for them, by means of being perceived as halal [by those who do perceive it as halal/”ok”], and therefore is much worse for them compared to other major sins.
Also, as women develop khiyanah (betrayal of trust) by time and again taking from the husbands’ wealths, the ugliness of spending from other peoples wealths [without their permission] also diminishes from their eyes, and it may well become possible that they (such women) unjustly spend out of other people’s wealths too, who are not their husbands, and betray other people’s trust too and steal from their wealths too with impunity. The meaning of this emphasis will be clear and manifest by just a little contemplation. It is proven then, that stopping women folk from theft is from amongst the most important jobs of Islam and for them, after shirk, this evil has been deemed the ugliest.
[Footnotes (By Imam Rabbani himself)]
One day our beloved Prophet, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, asked his sahaba, “Do you know which thief is the worst of thieves?” They replied, “No, we do not know. You do tell us.” Then Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, said, “Amongst thieves, the worst person is he who steals from his salah (namaz/prayers), and does not fulfill the integrals of salah completely.” (all quotes paraphrased translations of meanings)
It is also necessary to stay away from this theft too, so that one does not become from amongst the worst of thieves.
The intention for salah should be made with the full presence of the heart as the deed cannot be performed properly without achieving [a hearty] intention; and the recitation must be performed properly and the rukoo’ (bowing) and sujood (prostrations) should be performed calmly and the qaumah (standing) and jalasah (sitting) must also be done calmly, that is, one should stand up properly after the rukoo’ and should remain standing for the duration of reciting one tasbih (subhan Allah) at least, and between the two sujood too, one must sit properly and remain sitting for the duration of one tasbih at least, and the one who doesn’t do as such, should count him/herself from amongst the ranks of thieves and deserving of the warning.
[EXPLANATION OF THE THIRD CONDITION – PROHIBITION OF ZINA]
The third condition associated with the bay’ah of women in the holy text is the prohibition of zina (fornication/adultery). The women’s bay’ah is specially associated with this condition because the accomplishment of zina is associated with the consent of most women as they present themselves to men for this deed. Women are the forerunners in this deed and their consent in this deed is significant. Thus, the prohibition of this deed shall be emphasized more for women and men are followers to women in this deed.
الزَّانِيَةُ وَالزَّانِي فَاجْلِدُوا كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ مِّنْهُمَا مِئَةَ جَلْدَةٍ
Translation of meaning: The fornicating female and the fornicating male, lash them both a hundred times. [Holy Quran 24:2]
And this evil is one which harms in duniya and the akhirah and is evil and rejected in all religions.
Seyyidina Hudhaifa, radi Allahu ‘anhu, has narrated from the Holy Prophet, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, that he said, “O mankind! Abstain from zina, as it has 6 perils, 3 in duniya and 3 in akhirah. Of the 3 perils of duniya, one is that the zaaniy’s gracefulness, cleanliness, and illumination is wasted away. Another one is that zina is a cause for poverty and destitution. The third is that it reduces a man’s age. And those 3 perils that await the zaaniy in the akhirah are Allah Ta’ala’s wrath, second being harshness in being accounted, and the third one being the punishment of fire.” (all quotes are paraphrased translation of meanings).
Know that, prophetic ahadith say that Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, has stated that the zina of the eyes is looking at strange women, zina of the hands is catching/touching strange women, and the zina of the feet is walking towards strange women.
Allah Tabaraka wa Ta’ala has commanded:
Translation of meaning: Tell [o beloved Messenger] the believing men to lower their gaze and to protect their private parts [from haram]; this is very pure for them. [Holy Quran 24:30]
and Allah Ta’ala has commanded:
Translation of meaning: And tell [o beloved Messenger] the believing women to lower their gaze and protect their private parts [from haram]. [Holy Quran 24:31]
It should be known that hearts are followers of eyes. Until the eyes are shut from haram, safeguarding the heart is difficult and if the eye is afflicted [with sin], then the heart being saved is difficult, and if the heart is arrested [on sin], then it is very tough to save the private part. Therefore, it becomes necessary to shut the eye from muharramaat (prohibitions) so that it facilitates the safeguarding of the private parts and does not lead to losses in both matters of deen (religion) and duniya; and the Quran even prohibits from this that women talk to men softly and sweetly like the sinful women, so much so that they lead the sinful men to evil fantasies, and gives birth to evil greed in their hearts; and women should speak good (i.e., permissible) things in such a manner that does not lead to such [evil] fantasies and greed.
And it has also been prohibited that women display their beauty and ornaments in front of men and indulge them in [evil] desires.
And it has also been prohibited that they strike/tap their feet on the ground so that their hidden beauty becomes known as gold or silver anklets and other such ornaments will move and cause sound and draw attention towards women from the men.
Shortly, any thing that leads to fisq (sinfulness) is forbidden and evil and should be abstained from, then the means and causes of muharramaat (prohibitions) should also be abstained from so that one is saved from the muharramaat proper
و الله سبحانه العاصم و ما توفيقي الا بالله عليه توكلت و اليه أنيب
and Allah Subhanahu alone is The One who saves and my success is by none other than Allah, in Him I place my trust and to Him do I turn.
It should not be hidden that lustfully looking at and touching other women too come under the same ruling as that of strange men. It is not allowed that a woman prepare herself for anyone other than her husband or adorn or beautify herself. Other than her husband, doesn’t matter if it is another man or woman, just as men are forbidden from lustfully looking at and touching prepubescent/adolescent boys, women too are forbidden from lustfully looking at and touching other women.
This point shall be propagated well as this path leads to [severe] losses in duniya and akhirah. It is difficult for menfolk to reach womenfolk because of opposite gender and there are barriers in the way. On the other hand, it is easy for a woman to approach another woman due to belonging to the same gender. On this matter, extreme care must be taken, and warnings regarding women [lustfully] casting glances at and touching other women should be in a more manifest, illuminated, and open manner as opposed to warnings regarding men looking at and touching women or women looking at and touching men.
[EXPLANATION OF THE FOURTH CONDITION – KILLING OFFSPRING]
The fourth condition commanded at the time of the women’s bay’ah is the prohibition on the killing of children, as Arab women in those days used to kill their girls out of fear of poverty.
This evil deed, just as it is on the topic of killing a human without justification, it is also on the topic of cutting relations [of kinship] and that too is from the major sins.
[EXPLANATION OF THE FIFTH CONDITION – PROHIBITION OF SLANDER]
And the fifth condition that was stated in the bay’ah of women is the prohibition from slandering and tale-bearing. And since this quality is found in most women, they have been specifically stopped from this deed. This quality is the worst from amongst evil qualities and is the lowest from amongst the negative character traits, which is on the same turf as lying – something that has been stated as forbidden and sinful in all religions; and it also contains in it harming the believer towards whom such slander and tale-bearing is directed – and hurting a believer is haram and is an accessory to fasad fil arzd (spreading mischief on earth), something that is declared as prohibited and dejected, haram and denounced based on the explicit primary text of the Quran.
[EXPLANATION OF THE SIXTH CONDITION – ABSTAINING FROM DISOBEYING THE PROPHET]
And the sixth condition, abstaining from the sin of disobeying and opposing the commands of the Prophet, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam – what ever he states. This condition incorporates fulfillment of all commands and abstention from all prohibitions of the Shari’ah, be it salah, or zakat, or fasting, or Hajj, as the foundation of Islam rests on these 4 pillars after the belief in Allah Ta’ala and accepting what ever is brought forth by the Prophet, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. The performance of the 5 daily salawaat must be accomplished without any heedlessness or laziness and with full diligence and activeness, and the zakat on one’s wealth must be paid with full fervor and passion, and the fasts of Ramadan, which are an expiation for the sins committed during the year, must be sincerely observed, and the Hajj of the Blessed Baytullah, about which the Mukhbir as-Sadiq (The Truthful Informer, i.e., our Master Rasulullah) has articulated:
الحج يجب ما كان قبله
The Hajj expiates all that precedes it (i.e., deletes all sins past).
Similarly, there is no exit from adherence [to the Shari’ah] and taqwa, as Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, has commanded:
ملاك دينكم الورع
The entire works of your religion depend on adherence.
and that (adherence) is the leaving of all prohibitions in the Shari’ah. And one must abstain from addictive and decadent habits and substances the same way one abstains from alcohol, and must consider them as haram and bad, and must also abstain from music and [decadent] singing, which is included in illicit playfulness and merry making, and is thus haram, as is stated:
الغناء رقية الزنا
[Decadent] singing [and music] are the talismans to [aid in] fornication/adultery.
And backbiting and tale-bearing should also be abstained from, [both of] which are prohibited by Shari’ah. And laughing and clowning around and needlessly causing annoyance to other believers are not allowed in any case, and abstinence from that too is necessary.
And do not believe in ill omens, as they do not have any effects, and do not consider any illness as contagious that one catches an illness from another and can be transferred from a patient to a healthy person, as the Mukhbir as-Sadiq, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, has forbidden from both of these:
لا طيرة و لا عدوى
There’s no [such thing as a] bad omen or a contagious disease. [Sahih Bukhariy]
It means that there is no reality to “bad omens” and disease spreading from one to another is also not proven absolutely with certainty. And surely do not trust the words of soothsayers and astrologers and do not inquire matters of the unseen from them, and do not consider them as knowledgeable in matters of the unseen as there has been extreme emphasis in the Shari’ah prohibiting from this. And do not practice sorcery/witchcraft and neither visit sorcerers/black magicians as it is a qat’iy haram (i.e., established as haram by foundational proofs of Islam and accepted unanimously by all scholars with no difference of opinion) and this is an extremely assertive and well established step into kufr; and NONE OF THE MAJOR SINS (KABAAIR) ARE AS CLOSE TO KUFR as black magic and practicing sorcery/witchcraft. One should be extremely careful that the minutest of acts from such filth are not committed by a Muslim, even by accident as it has been stated that as long as a person is Muslim, black magic cannot be performed by him; and when iman (faith) leaves him, may Allah protect us all from this, at that time sorcery will be effected by him. Then, black magic and iman are the negators of each other. If witchcraft exists [in a person], faith does not. This point must be abundantly propagated so that the works of faith do not get affected and one’s faith does not slip away from their hands due to the ugliness of this deed.
In short, what ever has been commanded by the Mukhbir as-Sadiq, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, and what ever the scholars have articulated in the books of Shari’ah, one must leave no stones unturned to implement it, and must consider acting contrary to that as fatal poison that leads to everlasting death and various different forms of punishment.
And when the women pledging the bay’ah accepted all these conditions, then Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, accepted their bay’ah only by words and sought forgiveness for them as was Allah Ta’ala’s command. That forgiveness, which, by the command of Allah Ta’ala Himself, is sought in someone’s favor by Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam – it is fully hoped that it shall be accepted and that entire group shall be forgiven.
Hindah, the wife of Abu Sufyan, was also included in this bay’at. In fact, she was the leader of that group of women and was speaking on their behalf, and by the bay’ah and this seeking of forgiveness, there is an immense amount of hope in her favor.
Please then, know that who ever from amongst the women folk accepts these conditions and acts according to them, she is juridically subject to this bay’at and is given the glad tiding of benefiting from the barakah of this istighfar (forgiveness) [sought by the Prophet for them].
Allah Ta’ala has stated:
مَّا يَفْعَلُ اللّهُ بِعَذَابِكُمْ إِن شَكَرْتُمْ وَآمَنتُمْ
Translation of meaning: Why should Allah punish you if you thank [Him] and believe [properly and ardently]. [Holy Quran 4:147]
Being thankful is attributed to accepting the commands of the Shari’ah and acting in accordance to them. Being the way to salvation and the path to bliss, this belief and practice is what is [truly] the following of the Bearer of the Shari’ah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.
Teachers and mashayekh take students only by this intention that they may guide in the following of the Shari’ah, and by the blessings of that, people find it easy and convenient to act according to the beliefs and the commands of the Shari’ah – NOT so that murids go on doing what ever they wish and eat what ever they feel like , and the mashayekh become their shields and protect them from punishment, as such a desire is but a fantasy. In this court [of Allah] NO ONE shall plead for another one except by permission. Unless and until he is liked [and worthy], no one shall canvass for him, and one will become mutadza (accepted and liked) when deliberately he acts (i.e., deliberately tries his utmost best) in accordance to the Shari’ah, and THEN if he has lapsed due to any human errors, being saved due to shafa’ah (intercession) is possible for him.
On what grounds can a sinner be called murtadza (accepted/liked)?
When Allah Ta’ala wills forgiveness for him (the sinner), He will introduce a means and intermediary for such a forgiveness. That person is in reality accepted even though on the [temporally] outward he is a sinner.
و الله سبحانه الموفق – ربنآ اتنا من لدنك رحمة و هيىء لنا من امرنا رشدا
And Allah Ta’ala alone is The One who grants success. Our Lord! Grant us mercy from Your court and create wellness in our affair.
END LETTER 41 ———————————————————————–
Translator’s notes & explanations:
 – Please note dear sisters that the Prophet never touched a lady’s hands, even while taking the pledge. Also no woman is reported to have kissed his blessed hands. A “shaykh” who lets women touch or kiss his hands is simply a shaytan and has nothing to do with Ahlus Sunnah or the ways of the pious Sufis. If the person says it is allowed for him because he is a shaykh or a father-figure then he is indeed a shaytan, for no one’s status is higher than the Prophet, and he himself never shook hands with women.
The Prophet has told the believing men that it is better for them to have a nail hammered into their foreheads than to touch the body of a strange woman in authentic ahadith.
The shayateen who give the hadith of the slave girl as a proof that a slave girl would catch the Prophet’s hands and take him to any part of Madinah is not a right proof as regular hijab rules are not applied to slaves. Slave girls were allowed to shake hands or leave their faces and hairs uncovered. In fact in the times of Seyyidina ‘Umar, radi Allahu ‘anhu, if our Master ‘Umar saw a woman not covering properly, he automatically deemed her to be a slave girl.
The shayateen who try to promote Muslim women shaking hands with strange men, and worse yet kafir men, based on this hadith are nothing but impostors and agents of the kuffaar who seek to violate established ijma’ of the 4 madhhabs of the Ahlus Sunnah. There is ijma’ on this that strange men and women are not allowed to touch each other. According to the mujtahid scholars of fiqh, just violating the ijma’ of the Ahlus Sunnah can warrant takfeer (being declared kafir) on the person. Only the Hanafi madhab allows OLD & FRAIL women, who are past attractiveness, some laxity in their dealings with men, but even that is not as these shayateen make it out and apply a blanket ruling of hand shakes with strange women.
Bottom line: anyone who claims to be a shaykh and tries to allow women to shake hands with men or says that it is ok for a woman to catch or shake or kiss her shaykh’s hands is simply a shaytan and has nothing to do with Ahlus Sunnah or Sufism.
 – Note the words of the noble imam where he says that anyone who attests TWO religions as being valid is ALSO a mushrik, even if one of the religions is Islam. He also says that anyone who draws a parallel between the commands of Islam and another religion, is ALSO a mushrik.
This is because it is clearly stated by Allah and His Messenger that THE ONLY religion acceptable in front of Allah is Islam. These wise words of the imam send the perennialists of today packing – the shaytans and munafiqs (hypocrites in religion who are kafir from inside but pretend to be Muslims) who seek to equate Islam and other religions.
In our times there are shayateen who seek to draw parallels between Islam and anything from christianity and judaism to budhhism and seek to declare all pagans as “people of the book”.
Firstly, only christians and jews are people of the book, and even if every kafir in the world was a person of the book, it still wouldn’t mean anything at all, as even people of the book who do not attest to the message brought by the Prophet Muhammad, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, are STILL kafirs. Even calling budhhists and shintoists and confucians and hindus as “people of the book” does not help these fools achieve their aims.
Because Islam and kufr are NOT EQUAL, be it the kufr of christianity or judaism or the kufr of hinduism or budhhism or any other religion. These people are agonized to tell their kafir brothers that there is no place in the Muslim heaven for someone who does not believe in the Prophethood of our Master Rasulullah, so they seek to employ these kind of tactics.
 – i.e., Allah. Wajibul Wujood means “Intrinsically Necessary in Existence”, that is, only and only Allah’s Divine Existence is “necessary”, i.e., it MUST be. The existence of all else is only a “possibility”, i.e., it may or may not exist subject to His Will. However, it is an absolute impossibility that there is no Creator and only idiots deny the existence of Allah. Some kalam trivia.
 – The imam is talking about the women who visit soothsayers and black magicians and then follow their instructions on how their desires can be achieved, and a sizable portion of women do that. Please note dear sisters, that visiting sorcerers and magicians and following their instructions to seek help from jinn, stones, stars etc. squarely negates one’s Islam. Such people are called kafir and mushrik in the Shari’ah. A woman who visits such people leaves the fold of Islam. A person who leaves Islam is no longer even under the bay’ah of his/her shaykh and his/her marriage too is terminated. If a woman leaves Islam in this manner, even if she thinks she was seeking help for her husband’s sake, she is no longer married to her husband and any relation she has with him is pure zina, and any children born in this state are illegitimate. Sahih ahadith tell us that any benefit that comes to us is from Allah, and any harm that comes is also from Allah. Visiting such people negates one’s Islam as it squarely negates one’s faith in one of the most integral aspects of faith – “wal qadri khayrihi wa sharrihi min Allahi Ta’ala” (and good and bad faith is from Allah). Please DO NOT take your Islam for granted and think that you are immune from loosing your faith. Scholars have written that the one who is not afraid of losing his faith will most probably lose it before he dies.
This practice is of seeking help from hindu-istic rituals of idol-worshiping, like seeking help of stones, attributing good and evil effects to trees, respecting the idols these pagans worship like ganesha for fear of some harm if they do not respect them, etc. is especially prevalent in the women from the subcontinent. This is all negation of Islam. Doubt in the falsehood of manifest kufr is kufr in itself. They should note that hindus are polytheists and kafirs. A Muslim sister should hate hindu-ism from the bottom of her heart and should even teach her little ones to hate idols and idol worshiping. She should teach her children to not befriend any kafir children. How can a sensible person worship idols that he carves out of his own hands. Idol worshiping is the most hated and lowliest of acts in Islam. These people are called as filthy, impure and the lowest of creation in the Quran. Even the animals they worship are far exalted in status above them, EVEN pigs and dogs! A kafir/mushrik is called “sharrul bariyyah” (the worst of creation) in the Quran.
As the noble imam explains in the next paragraph, regarding people claiming to be Muslim celebrating diwali and lighting lamps, this practice is prevalent even today abundantly in the subcontinent and barring very few, most scholars don’t have the courage to speak against it. There are women of Muslim families who light lamps on diwali for any reason including warding off evil. They should know that such acts negate one’s Islam. There are foolish women who tie a “rakhi” on the hands of hindu men making them “brothers” according to hindu rituals! The Quran says we should not seek friends outside of Muslims. How can a filthy idol worshiper be a brother of a Muslima?! There are people from Muslim families who play holi with hindus. Their festival of holi is a filthy ritual of drunken orgies and nothing more. Muslims should stay away from this spiritual filth of hinduism and should never have any affinities with any kafirs, specially hindus. They can only be used in worldly matters in a very cold/professional manner. Please see the previous threads on the treatment of kafirs.
Recently there is a wave in the subcontinent where people are promoting the equality of Islam and hinduism saying Rahim and “ram” are the same. May Allah’s curse befall their faces! Please note that whoever says, even for the sake of diplomacy or “being nice”, that Rahim and “ram” (the fictitious idiot hindu human deity who could not even salvage his own kingdom and prevent his wife from being kidnapped) are one and the same, has patently become an apostate from Islam. An apostate is THE WORST form of kafir and worse than an original kafir born in a kafir family. Even the one who says, “they’re not the same, but we do not want to get into fights and arguments” commit kufr. It is incumbent upon Muslims to distinguish Islam from kufr. They can be told simply and plainly, “to you your religion, to me mine. I do not believe Islam and hinduism are equal and can be equated as one like this by modern day slogans and political buzz phrases.”
There are people promoting this filthy belief that all religions and people are equal. Here is what the Quran says:
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ وَالْمُشْرِكِينَ فِي نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا أُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ شَرُّ الْبَرِيَّةِ
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ أُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ خَيْرُ الْبَرِيَّةِ
Translation of meaning: Those who disbelieve*, among the People of the Book** and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures. Those who have faith and do righteous deeds,- they are the best of creatures. [Holy Quran 98:6-7]
* disbelief is disbelieving in the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.
** ALL the people of book are patently kafirs as stated by the giant scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah like Imam Ghazali and all others, unlike what some of the new age shaytans of our times claiming to be “sufis” say. As stated in the explanation of “disbelief”, anyone who disbelieves in the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad, is a kafir. Period.
The Quran clearly states that those who disbelieve and the pagans, they are THE WORST of creatures while Muslims are THE BEST of creatures.
In the subcontinent this filthy belief of equality of all religions is propagated by the bollywood film industry and specially by the murtads (apostates) claiming to be “Muslim” stars. Please note that anyone who commits acts of kufr and shirk like wearing a crucifix or bowing to idols or marking the hindu signs on their foreheads is squarely a kafir as declared unanimously by ALL scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah. The only exceptions for saying/doing things that ONLY A KAFIR would do, like saying a sentence of kufr, is if a person is UNDER IMMEDIATE THREAT OF LOSING LIFE/LIMB. Firstly their profession itself is haram, and secondly, “it’s a requirement of the job” is in no way, shape, or form, a valid excuse in the Shari’ah. These people who claim to be Muslim and work in bollywood acting out kufr are ALL apostates from Islam and worse than hindus themselves.
Every Muslim should boycott bollywood and all other such decadent media that promote kufr and indecency. It contains many evils. There are children of Muslims who hum songs containing words of kufr. Playing their movies manifests the idols of hinduism in one’s home, which is a sure way to drive barakah out of one’s house as a bare minimum. A lot of the songs in their movies are nothing but chants of hindu religion, which common people have become so desensitized to, and many non-subcontinentals might not even know about, considering many non-subcontinental Muslims also watch bollywood movies. These people are nothing but promoters of kufr and indecency as are those who make excuses for them. What’s further sad is that even Muslims from neighboring Pakistan, are infatuated by this bollywood culture of kufr.
Again, ALL Muslims MUST hate kufr and shirk. Specially the sisters of the subcontinent should hate hinduism and avoid the company of hindus. They should also make sure they teach their children to absolutely hate all forms of polytheism and kufr, be it hinduism or budhhism or christianity or jainism or sikhism and should NEVER seek any form of spiritual help from anyone other than a pious scholar of the Ahlus Sunnah.
 – It is shirk if the animal is slaughtered taking the name of anyone other than Allah and directing worship to that person. It is NOT shirk if the animal is slaughtered IN ALLAH’s NAME and one prays to Allah to divert the thawab of feeding it to the poor – to a pious waliy. The wahabis, may Allah guide them, declare both of these as shirk when they are poles apart. The former indeed is shirk, while the latter has sound proofs from Sunnah, to do a good deed on behalf of one’s deceased parents or Muslim teachers and friends and shuyukh. Even most wahabis realise this, but their extremists give a blanket ruling of shirk in both cases.
 – In the current times some stupid women of the subcontinent don’t fast but they still pledge food offerings to pious ladies and shuyukh and vow to read fictitious stories associated with such real or perceived pious women and awliyaa. Not offering to poor for the thawab of these people, but they have bizarre rituals regarding making some dishes and eating at certain times to the name of some person after reading some story or chanting some tale. There is no basis for such rubbish in Islam. See note 7 as well.
 – What the imam is talking about is foolish women in his times in the indian subcontinent, keeping fasts and intending them towards real or fictitious awliyaa. This is indeed shirk. The intention of fasting should be only for Allah. This practice crept in from the idol-worshiping hindus of india. But nonetheless, Muslims and especially the women folk in the subcontinent are still in dire straits and are heavily influenced by the filthy hindu culture.
 – In order for the wife not to be guilty of theft as stated in this verse and the imam’s explanations, it’s best if a husband and wife have a mutual agreement and open communication where they know each other’s activities. The bottom line is that if you spend your husband’s money in secrecy and know full well that he will be angry at such spending, then that is indeed theft. A woman is not even allowed to give charity from her husband’s wealth without his permission. This issue can simply be solved by good and open communication. On the brother’s part, he can save his wife from falling into this difficult test by telling her something like, “you can spend whatever you wish on the matters of the house and you can give charity from my wealth too” OR if he is more confident he can even say, “you can do as you wish with my money”.
This is something that the couple can work out between themselves very easily. Issues of this sort are based on general understandings. In modern times, it’s a given that a wife will go to the supermarket and buy groceries if she needs to, when the husband is away. She can’t call the husband before she picks out every tomato, and the husband is fully aware of this, and it’s a given most husbands wouldn’t even bat an eyelid if mentioned that the wife had visited the supermarket. It is a part of routine life and expected. This is different to her secretly writing off $5 as $10 and secretly “saving” money from the husband’s wealth for her own usage and routinely lying to him, pinching off his wallet. This is purely theft, a small amount doesn’t mean theft is not theft. If she feels they need to save, be it to make a purchase for herself, or the children, or even for the couple’s own future, she can easily avoid this by telling the husband, “I am going to be saving money for a rainy day/jewelry/children’s stuff and not tell you about it because our money is flying and we need to save. I will not tell you how much I spend, accurately, until we achieve our targeted savings because if it is openly known, we will be inclined to spend the money”. The aim is just to state that honest people have nothing to fear and they can easily avoid falling into error by simple and open communication and good knowledge of the Shari’ah.
As the imam says in the next paragraph, women who develop this habit of stealing (and they know full well when they are stealing) then also start stealing and committing this “domestic fraud” with impunity from other people too, like brothers, sons, and at times even from outsiders not members of the family. There are plentiful mothers too who lie to their sons to extract money from them and exaggerate on their requirements. If they need something that costs a $100, they say it costs $150. This is purely fraud and deception even in the Shari’ah.
They can easily avoid this by just saying “I need $[x]. Let me know how much you can give”.
This is a severity in the Shari’ah as the imam explains and can even take one to the borders of kufr if one considers such stealing and fraud as halal; and do not forget, that it is mentioned specifically for women in the Quran for a reason. May Allah protect all our sisters from this.
 – One must learn the correct pronunciations of the Arabic alphabet and the rules of tajweed. Also any recitation, in or out of the prayer, must be at least as much audible as the person be able to hear his own voice.
 – The imam shows from the Quran that men follow women in this deed, the fornicating man being mentioned after the woman. While the men may be more aggressive, most of the times, the cause of initiation of the act is due to the woman.
 – Abu Na’eem narrated this in Hilya; Bayhaqiy in Shua’b al-Iman, and Imam suyuti in Jami’ al-Kabir.
 – Sahih Muslim
 – The imam is saying women should not flirt with men. These days, we seek Allah’s refuge, hijabi sisters speak fliratiously with kafir men, thinking they are doing da’wah. The imam gives the perfect litmus test to root out this flirtation. The sister should assess, “Will my mannerisms in front of this man lead him to think of me and be attracted to me or cause him to want to spend more time with me OR am I just speaking in a platonic manner and to the point on a good topic, sending no signals willingly or unwillingly, to this man?” Sisters should never laugh and display their feminine charm and pique when conversing with men and should always be stern without being disrespectful. In the Shari’ah a woman is not even expected to reply to a strange man’s salam, and it is makruh for a man to even say salam to a strange woman.
Ahadith and scholars have cursed women who use their feminine softness to sell an item, and such a transaction, and the men folk who utilize the services of such a woman.
It is especially disgraceful for a Muslim woman to flirt with kafir men. Muslim women should be extra assertive to kafir men and should always be bold in refusing handshakes to these people Allah calls “the worst of creation” (98:6), His “enemies” (2:98) and as “filth” (9:28) in the Quran, and only converse with them in an extremely platonic, cold and unfriendly manner. All Muslims are forbidden from seeking friendships with kuffaar and the evils of a Muslim sister befriending a kafir male are increased exponentially.
Suffice it to say that the fiqh of ALL FOUR SUNNI MADHHABS prohibits Muslim women from opening up EVEN in front of kafir WOMEN.
Muslim women must observe hijab from EVEN the women of the kuffaar. This is a basic, standard ruling in ALL FOUR madhhabs that can be seen in ALL standard books of fiqh.
This prohibition is because there is a fear that the women of the kuffaar will describe the Muslim sister’s beauty to their men. Such is the exaltation of a Muslim woman’s chastity, that the noble Shari’ah doesn’t even want her beauty to be described in front of the kafir men. What then can we say about Muslim sisters who willingly flirt with kuffaar men?
It is also reprehensibly disliked/forbidden in ALL the madhhabs for Muslim women to kiss christian/jewish/fire-worshiper/other kafir women to greet them.
The Hanafis can see Imam Ibn Abidin’s Radd Al-Muhtaar (a basic Hanafi fiqh primer) 9/613 where it states explicitly that a Muslim woman can NOT reveal her ‘awrah to a kafir woman, christian or jew or idolatress. Please also note that Imam Ibn Abidin paints christians and jews with the same brush as idolators. Another proof that people of the book are kafirs.
The honor and dignity of a Muslimah is simply incomparable to the dishonor and disgrace of a kafirah (female kafir).
There is NO sisterhood between a Muslimah and a kafirah that a Muslimah open her hijab in front of a kafirah like she does in front of other Muslimah’s.
In fact respectable [Muslim] women are not allowed to uncover in front of [Muslim] women of ill-repute too, like prostitutes or illicit dancers, as there is a danger of them talking about their beauty in front of other men of ill-repute. A kafirah is of an ill-er repute than a Muslimah of ill repute – by default. This is an Islamic creedal point. The lightest word used for kafirs in the Quran is “fasiq” which means “open sinner” or a person of ill repute.
Needless to say that the very second a person honors kufr (disbelief) or kafir (disbeliever), he/she immediately becomes a disbeliever himself. See this ruling from the Hanafi manual Durrul Mukhtar (point no. 14) on this post.
Contemplate well dear sister. When a Muslimah’s chastity is commanded to be guarded from other kafirah women even, then exactly how lowly and disgraceful it must be for a Muslimah to display her feminine softness and charm to a kafir male, even if unknowingly?! What can we say regarding those, may Allah protect us all, who actively and knowingly flirt with kafir men?!
Any “scholar” or “teacher” who gives you the impression that he’d like to see you talk light-heartedly to kafir men or even be carelessly light-hearted around Muslim men is not a teacher or a shaykh but purely a shaytan and a dayyuth. In any case, the rule is simple, in any dealing with a male, the sister should always think “Will my words/actions cause the man to be infatuated by my charm, even 1%?”
 – Obviously lesbianism is forbidden in Islam just as homosexuality is forbidden. It should be noted that women folk are not forbidden from dressing up and being presentable when going to visit their other lady friends or for their gatherings and weddings and such. The prohibition that the imam is talking about is for women who have lesbian tendencies to dress up and adorn themselves for other women and lustfully look at and lustfully touch other women.
 – The imam’s foresight and how ahead of his time he was can be seen here. He is warning against lesbianism at an age when the kafir europe would not even entertain the subject. Also he says beautifully that the nafs is indeed extremely evil and it must be fought against at all times and places, regardless if one is gay or straight.
 – A line/sentence from a primary text is called nass in fiqh.
 – Tale bearing and gheebah should be avoided within the family too. It doesn’t just apply to social circles in the neighborhood. A lot of women have a habit of complaining to their brothers or sons or husbands about other women/people in the family, behind their backs – with absolutely no aim other than gossip or stirring trouble or poisoning the man’s mind. Some of the “smart” ones know the art of complaining and poisoning the man’s mind without saying anything negative and just hinting. This too falls in that category.
 – If it is as the people of science say, then why is it that when an “epidemic” breaks out, some people are not affected? How was it in the past that despite no vaccinations, some people were afflicted by diseases and some were not? What is this if not FATE?
 – Abu Dawood
 – As stated earlier on in the letter and at my note 4, at the end of the letter too, the imam reiterates the position of the scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah that iman and witchcraft are the opposites of each other. Just as the imam said that a person who holds two religions to be valid, is a mushrik, likewise, the person who thinks Islam and black magic are both valid, is also patently a kafir mushrik. Please make no mistake about it. Visiting a black magician or doing it by oneself is the same thing. Visiting these kind of people thinking they can alter one’s affairs or the affairs of those around them is purely shirk and apostasy, may Allah protect us from such. Likewise, visiting soothsayers and believing their predictions is also kufr.
 – Plenty has been mentioned regarding black magic being kufr. In sha Allah some advise on this topic for Muslim sisters shall be beneficial to them.
Firstly dear sister, know full well that the effects of magic are created by Allah to destroy those for whom He has willed a bad fate (the magicians and those who go to them) so that they think they are favored and blessed.
The Prophet has said that whatever is in your fate WILL reach you and whatever is not, SIMPLY CAN’T. Even if someone doesn’t perform magic on you, you would have still had the same issues. The magician and the jealous person who went to him just earned themselves a spot in jahannam by doing the black magic and becoming the cause of it.
The effects of black magic are like the effects of medicine. They MAY work if Allah wills, or MAY NOT work if Allah wills. Remember, Allah is the Creator of all causes and all effects.
If you think you have been affected by black magic, the VERY FIRST thing you must do is:
DO NOT PANIC OR BE AFRAID. Shaytan works best with people who panic or become afraid.
FEAR ACCELERATES MAGIC. Be VERY confident of the help of Allah. Be more confident than you were before you thought you were hit by magic.
It is AN OLD WIVE’S TALE that only black magic can counter the effects of black magic. ALL EVIL CAN BE DESTROYED BY THE QURAN. Have FIRM FAITH in this.
Some foolish women say that some evil eye (‘ayn/nazar) can’t be cured by the Quran or some magic can’t be cured. Let it be known to them dear sister, that they are simply denying the power of Allah’s book by making such claims.
These are rubbish claims. If a person is not cured by the Quran, then all it means is that the person either does not have faith that the Quran can heal him, or he most probably is reading incorrectly and/or without faith in the power of the Quran or he is not fulfilling his obligations and/or involved in some haram or that Allah has not willed a cure for him (maybe Allah wants to raise his status by letting him suffer).
On the last point, regarding Allah not willing a cure for a person, please know full well dear sister that, Allah afflicts those He likes to raise their statuses. The Prophet has said that the people who are tested the most by Allah are Prophets, and then those next highest in status and so on. Know full well sister, that your or any person’s sufferings are nothing compared to those of the Prophet and the sahaba and the noble ahlul bayt. This duniya is called dar al-balaa (the house of afflictions). Life on this earth is simply not going to be a bed of roses.
There is NO ONE greater than the Prophet from Allah’s creation. He has been given the access to all the treasures of the universe. And still, he lost all his children during his blessed life time except for Seyyidetina Fatima, radi Allahu ‘anha. Didn’t the sahaba and the ahlul bay suffer at the hands of evil tyrants? So know full well dear sister that, it may well be possible that suffering is simply written down in your fate. PLEASE do not believe that other black magic will cure black magic.
IF THERE IS A CURE IN YOUR FATE, IT IS IN THE QURAN. PERIOD.
Regarding suffering, please note that the life of this world is nothing but useless and insignificant. The Prophet has said in sound ahadith that IF this world was even equal to the worth of a mosquito’s wing in front of Allah, He would not have let a kafir have a full drink of water. THAT is how insignificant this duniya is. Also know that ANY problem you have from Allah is an expiation for our sins, and an elevation in our statuses and aversion of bigger problems like the punishment in the grave or the punishment of hellfire, may Allah protect us.
Anyway, the bottom line is, we MUST do our best to solve our problems, on our part, please see the previous post. But we must also keep in mind that duniya is a house of problems and that the real place to relax is the akhirah.
وَالْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى
Translation of meaning: And the hereafter is better and lasting. [Holy Quran 87:17]
وَلَلْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَّكَ مِنَ الْأُولَى
Translation of meaning: And the hereafter will be better for you than the beginning. [Holy Quran 93:4]
Please also know that even though the people who perform black magic and visit magicians are kafirs, the VICTIM TOO can become kafir – IF he/she goes overboard in fear and panic and starts to believe that the magician can do whatever he wants to him.
PLEASE take good heed from the verses above and
1) DO NOT LOSE HOPE IN ALLAH – this is kufr; and
2) DO NOT OVER PANIC AND THINK THE MAGICIAN CAN DO ANYTHING HE WILLS AND DICTATE YOUR AFFAIRS – this is also kufr.
You should have FIRM CONVICTION that the only harm that the magician or anyone else can deliver to you is what Allah has already destined in your fate. If the evil people who visit black magicians believe that the magician can do whatever he wants, and you also believe in the same thing, then what exactly is the difference between that kafir and you dear sister? Are the affairs of the world run by black magicians?
KNOW FULL WELL – that black magic is performed with the help of SHAYTAN, NOT ANGELS.
ANGELS ONLY & ONLY TAKE COMMANDS FROM ALLAH.
NO MAGICIAN EVER HAS – OR EVER WILL – CONTROL ANGELS. IT IS KUFR TO BELIEVE SUCH.
ALSO ANGELS ARE MA’SOOM – THAT IS THEY CAN NOT COMMIT MISTAKES. NO BLACK MAGICIAN CAN CAUSE AN ANGEL TO SLIP OR LAPSE.
ONLY THE ANGEL OF DEATH CAN TAKE YOUR LIFE. And as you know, the Angel of Death ONLY takes orders from Allah.
NO BLACK MAGICIAN IN THE WORLD CAN CAUSE DEATH.
Shaytan can only trouble you, and he will trouble more, if you trouble yourself by panicking and being afraid.
Shaytan CAN NOT kill you.
ONLY THE ANGEL OF RIZQ DELIVERS YOUR RIZQ. The black magician simply CAN NOT affect your rizq.
Some women think that going to a black magician can help them have a baby. They are not aware that all matters are destined by Allah and He alone is the Creator of life and death. All fate (qadr) is from ALLAH ALONE.
Please remember sister, the black magicians use certain personal information and personal items to cast their spells.
Please keep the following in mind.
Never tell your or your husband’s or your child’s date of birth to someone you feel has hasad (envy) to your children.
In certain cases it can’t be avoided, but if someone suspicious asks for it, one must never tell their mother’s name to some person who has envy. A lot of black magic is done by using a person’s name and his/her mother’s name.
NEVER EVER EVER give your or your husband’s or your child’s used clothes, washed or dirty, to someone who asks for it. It is a sure sign of magicians and those who go to them
(We are not talking about you giving them away to charity boxes to be sent to Afghanistan or Palestine. We are talking about well off people from your neighborhood or other such people who have no need for it and yet bizarrely ask you for your or your husband’s or child’s clothes). Some shameless people even directly ask for under garments.
NEVER cut your nails and give them to someone if they ask for it. This is another tool used by magicians. All cut nails should be disposed of properly in any case.
Sisters specially but all people should dispose of their hair properly. They should NEVER be left open to be picked up by any number of people. One of the best and easiest objects black magicians use are hairs of their victims. DON’T SPECIALLY give it to someone who asks for it.
ALWAYS read the basmala before eating and drinking anything (you have to anyways) and EMPHASIZE THIS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE to your children. A lot of times spells are cast on to food items and fed to people.
ALWAYS say ma sha Allah, EVEN IF YOU are praising your husband/children yourself. It is possible for the evil eye to take effect even when you love each other. It is NOT restricted to those jealous of you. Also your husband should make it a point to say ma sha Allah when he praises your beatuty. Keep this in mind dear sister. One can get the evil eye EVEN from the near and dear ones and even from good Muslims like shuyukh. We must always say ma sha Allah whenever we praise a blessing we see in any Muslim.
Also know that ANY TREATMENT of black magic by the Quranic roqia MUST BE in the presence of your husband/mahram – if done by a man. There is NOTHING in Islam that has a foundation in haram.
If any male wishes to be alone with you for the purpose of “treating” you, he is a shaytaan and not a Shaykh.
Magic or not, the VERY FIRST WORD, you must teach your children is the name of Allah, Jalla Jalalahu. We must all learn Allah’s Asmaa al-husna and teach them to our children as well. Chanting these names wards off the effects of evil. We must always read the Ayat al-Kursiy as much as we can, and teach our children to read it always, specially before leaving home. Ayat al-Kursiy surely drives away shaytaan and his cohorts.
BENEFICIAL NOTE: If you suspect any effects of evil eye (‘ayn/nazar) or black magic, reciting the Ayat al-Kursiy 75+ times is a tested remedy to let all painful and evil effects subside, and in such a case, it should be read with the intention of roqia (spiritual cure).
Any Shaykh who treats you with Islamic roqia should be adherent to the Shari’ah very strictly, not someone who asks you to come alone for treatment.
Please also see the attached addendum regarding daily morning and evening invocations to safeguard oneself from evil eye and magic and also basic treatments for black magic. You can read all of this yourself on yourself and your kids.
You should also teach the morning and evening invocations to your children.
 – Please note dear sister that the imam has pointed out again, for the second time, that the Prophet did not take the women’s bay’ah by touching their hands but only by words; AND remember this is on the day of conquest of Makkah, not in the early stages when Islam was starting out. Please bear it full well in mind that a person who shakes hands with women and tries to give faulty evidence for it, or a person who takes bay’ah from women by catching his hands or a person who lets women kiss his hands is only and only a shaytan. Such a person has NOTHING to do with Sunnism of Sufism.
 – The shias talk rubbish about not just the men of the sahaba but also the women, and they have a special hatred for the wife of Abu Sufyan. This is why the imam in his wisdom, points her name out and says that she made the bay’ah with Rasulullah. He is very subtly negating the shias as the ahlul bid’ah must be negated at any chance one gets, and at the same time establishing the high status of a sahabiyyah.
 – If you haven’t seen it yet, please see shaytan posing as shaykh. See how closely the words of the scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah resonate. Imam Ghazali too warned against idiots who give false hope. Imam Rabbani too is doing the same thing.
 – See note 24 as well. Recently some shayateen have been even saying christians and jews will also get shafa’ah; do you see how ugly and filthy that munafiq is? See how beautifully the imam explains that shafa’ah by the Prophet and other elders is firstly only by Allah’s permission and secondly only for those Muslims.
 – The “when” applies to us, the creation. Allah’s Will is one will.
 – The reality that is talked about is that the person in Allah’s eternal knowledge that is not contained by time and space, is known, as accepted. This is because Allah knows all things, past, present and future. As the imam states, our job is to act on the apparent, as the Shari’ah commands and when he is a sinner on the outward, we call him a sinner. After he repents, we don’t call him a sinner. That is why the imam says, “even though on the outward he is a sinner”. It is not for us humans to contemplate over what is Allah’s judgment or what the future holds or what is in people’s hearts. We have been commanded by the Shari’ah to act on the apparent. This is necessary to mention here because the munafiqs play with this point in order to try and show that their kafir brothers and sisters “may be” Muslims in reality. Our reply is very simple. Shari’ah commands us to act on the apparent. If someone is visible as a kafir to us, we call him such. If later on he becomes Muslim, we call him our brother in Islam. The aim of the munafiqs is really to muddy the water between Islam and kufr and to try and prove that Islam and kufr are equal and that Muslims and kafirs are equals.
